We popped in most days for a quick tapasand a few drinks... these visits turned into a couple of hours each time. The owner Jose was quite literally the perfect host, very charismatic, and always willing to fulfill our needs. Great location with... More

Great place for either having a drink and watching the world go by or for having a meal. Surprisingly extensive menu, all freshly cooked and a friendly atmosphere. Seemed to be used by lots of regulars. The owner and staff were very welcoming.

We ordered two Pizza's and they were pretty poor. The base was soggy in the middle and burnt around the edges. There was so much melted cheese i had to scrape it... More

We visited with friends recently and had mixed reviews. My meal was nice but my husband had lasagne and it was a tiny portion and not particularly inspiring. A touch expensive for what it is and there are better nearby but the staff were very welcoming and friendly.

We visited three times during our holiday and received excellent service everytime. We have two young children who were fed well and looked after with free ice pops. Happy children = Happy parents! We ate of the main menu everytime and the food was off a good standard. Will be back.
